Rug looks great! But, that wood paneling from the 70's 80's doesn't stand the test of time so much.
Back in the States, I helped rip that crap out of many 'a house in the 90's. Whitewashing is a decent alternative, but also involves a lot of sanding as it's usually finished.
Easier to rip it out.

I have no idea what the symbology is of that rug. But it's very unusual because of the huge expanse of blue, it's vegetable dye and very difficult to get consistent color. Most rugs are more 'busy' to hide flaws in dying.

It's a good idea to have rugs on the floors as well as hanging on the walls to keep the draft out in the winters. So yeah, it probably would be a good idea for Nodoom to have a few rugs.

Geometric domes and Yurts are perfect for covering the wall/s with rugs and carpets. A guy I knew built a metal structure geometric dome and as far as I know is still living in it although I am going back seven or eight years. He was pretty darn good at soldering but you can still make one out of wood. A nice little clay stove at the entrance or one with a long enough flue and decent ventilation would make winter feel like summer inside! I once went to a rave in a giant geometric dome but due to obvious reason cannot remember much about that night...

I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side. Just one thing I got to know. Who won?

Yeah, but if you have any other white surfaces close by they're gonna look shabby in comparison so you end up having to paint that too 13.gif

Well the last few days were a bit wet! Torrential rain all weekend and the temperature has taken a major fall! At least there is a bit of sunshine now. The weather plays a big part in if I get online or not.

My shoulder is giving me hell at the moment and it is even difficult for me type this message. gaah.gif

You guys are asking for photo's well I don't have a camera and my phone i recently sold. So it will be a while until I can do those. Sorry about that.

Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.

I'm sure the weather isn't helping your shoulder either patpat.gif

No worries about the pics though, it's no big deal. All in good time

lol. During my travels I've lived in caves, slept on beaches, pitched tents halfway up mountains, stayed in monasteries and orphanages, couch surfed, shared Yurts with Bedouins, lived in the outback with Aboriginals, drove around Australia in a van with a bed in the back and paid less than a dollar for a night in hostels in third world countries.

My flat at present seems fit for a king...

Never slept in a tree house though unless I can count the one I built when I was eleven in our orchard. Some of those tree house hotels look amazing and definitely one for the bucket list.

Glad to hear you are doing good. When I come up in Spring (If that's OK) I can bring a camera and use my phone for film footage. Hopefully by that time the bug out will be well established. By the way I was going to drive up. I guess I would have to leave the car at a certain point and trek the rest of the way but the use of a car means we can pick up stuff you need for the bug out like materials and supplies. I'm sure you're doing fine. When I was doing the Everest trek a few years ago I was struggling and out of breath just climbing the stretch of the mountain to namche bazaar and got overtaken by a Nepalese man half my size carrying a huge fridge freezer on his back. Man I felt embarrassed...
